Birmingham City are braced for another bid for their star striker Che Adams according to The Telegraph.

Southampton are readying a bid of around £14million for the striker having had a fee of around £10million rejected in January and have also submitted another bid already in this summer transfer window.

Adams is a man in demand having scored 22 goals in 48 appearances in all competition last term for the Blues.

The player is understood to favour a move to the Saints this summer but Everton and Burnley have also registered their interest in the 22-year-old.

Back in January, Birmingham City were under a transfer embargo and were concerned about losing their star striker without being able to obtain a replacement but now this is over they may look to use the funds his sale would bring to reinvest in the rest of their squad.

Adams currently has a three year contract at St Andrews and was their Player of the Season last season as well as being their top goalscorer.

Blues boss Garry Monk understands there will be interest in the former Sheffield United man but will not consider selling him until an acceptable bid is made and their valuation is met.

He said earlier in the summer: “He will go away now, come back in and if there is anything to visit we will visit it.”

“It was the same in January, there was interest, there were certain things going on but our communication was really good, he understood where we are at.”

With the recent financial strain on the club it would be difficult to see them not accepting a bid in this region even if it means losing their main source of goals. It will be an important transfer window for Blues as they may have to be resigned to replacing Adams.
